This is crazy.

Yesterday an agency of the State of New York proposed that Wiffleball was a dangerous an potentially harmful activity for children that attend summer camps. This game along with dodge ball, tag,red rover and other old school physical exercise pastimes was to be taxed,via a camp fee, to help insure child safety at all levels.Baseball is a game from which Wiffleball was invented,we tag the base runner,we dodge balls in several situations and we too red rover in stealing a base. Why are some children fat ( not a PC term ) , physically unfit and do not participate in sports and have low self esteem? Is it because some book learned group is hoping to save everyone from the horror and pain of being hit by a  ball of some sort, a skined knee or elbow or save a camper the embarrassment of having to participate in a game that they my not be skilled ? I wonder when MLB will require all game attendees to don fan helmets with face guards or better yet go virtual and we will just watch a pro computer created game on the Green Monster screen. No real balls,bats, dangerous base running and for god's sake no human and sometimes wrong umps. Tom

33" Lousiville Slugger 243 model has to be one of my favorites, but the absolute favorite is the 33" Pro Maple model 73 made by Xbat. The bat just has a perfectly balanced feel to it for my swing. I think the larger knob helps a ton.


Lots of excellent bats! Hope to use Barnstable very soon!

Matt, some of the maple composites we have made have over 15,000 contacts on them and still going strong. Let us know how yours endures the punishment you give the bat. Tom
